We’ve been hearing a lot about the “rule of law” lately. Biden’s look-the-other-way immigration policy is in effect an ingenious way to avoid that rule. That mocks the principle he piously says he supports.

This is bad for the country for a host of reasons. It’s bad because it does a nation no good to disrespect its own borders. It’s bad because as the country recovers from the pandemic, allowing massive numbers of people to join the economy means legal residents will have to compete with them for jobs. And it’s bad because it divides our country by flagrantly ignoring the sentiments of the half or so of voters who want illegal immigration to be controlled. So much for “healing the nation.”
